Hi, I thought about an idea concerning the browser surfing bar:

  1. The surfing bar at the bottom of the browser could be thinner to gain space.

Instead of making it smaller, the to-be-implemented design is to add further functionality to it

I don't like this new design. Tapping on tiny buttons instead of gestures.. it seems very un-sailfishy to me!

Agree. No "androish" expand button. Couldn't the bar be pulled up to be expose more functions?

I dont like the idea. Be happy that the bar goes away completely while Scrolling! This is what i totally miss on my Windows Phone. Iam okay with the size. Like i said i dont have to deal with it while Scrolling / Reading

This would be an easy change, but smaller bar would be more difficult to tap so we have ended up having the current size. However, if you think this would be good improvement please up vote the question.

hehe, upvoting this question requests much smaller fingers :) A bit smaller would be great anyway.
